Back injuries are painful and can be difficult to resolve. Sometimes a back pain is the result of a sudden injury or a recurring injury. Back pain is often serious and can leave you unable to do the things that you need to be able to do. Your body is incredible and is often able to heal minor problems, especially with help from a back injury chiropractor in Scottsdale. It is helpful to seek chiropractic care as soon as possible after the injury.
Visiting a Back Injury Chiropractor in Scottsdale
During your first visit to the back injury chiropractor in Scottsdale you will provide your medical history and take a tour of the office. Then, you will have a consultation with the chiropractor in a one-on-one meeting. The chiropractor will learn about your back injury as well as any other relevant health information.
Then you will have a chiropractic assessment. Comprehensive chiropractic evaluation and neurological testing will be completed so the chiropractor can determine the cause of the back pain. State-of-the-art diagnostic equipment helps find the precise location of the problem so that a treatment program can be created.
As part of the testing and evaluation you may be asked to move in specific ways so the chiropractor can assess your movement and pain. You might be asked to bend forward and back as well as sideways. Your gait may be analyzed to determine any abnormalities in your pattern of walking. A posture analysis may also be done to reveal misalignments in your spine.
Additional diagnostics may be completed such as chiropractic postural x-rays and any other tests. The chiropractor will evaluate the results of all the diagnostic testing and prepare information for your next visit. The chiropractor will answer your questions and provide you with information about the recommended course of treatment.
Chiropractic Back Treatment
Chiropractic back treatment is helpful for many types of back injuries. In many instances, chiropractic care can begin to help alleviate the pain and discomfort from your back injury and provide you with some relief.
A back injury chiropractor in Scottsdale will be able to begin treatments very soon after making a diagnosis. A treatment plan will address the areas of your back or neck that require care so the chiropractor will focus on specific locations and treatment options.
Chiropractic care can sometimes alleviate or reduce pain so you don’t have to rely on painkillers, which can be harmful and addictive. Soft tissue damage is one of the most common causes of pain in a back injury. Soft tissue requires some time to heal but patients often enjoy some relief from pain after just a few visits. Muscles weaken after a back injury and they can be more prone to re-injury.
Supportive long-term healing rehabilitative exercises will help the muscles strengthen again and improve flexibility. A good chiropractic plan will reduce pain and inflammation and get your back on the road to a full recovery. Contact our office to learn more about our chiropractic services and to schedule a visit.
